I had humble beginnings growing up in a dysfunctional household. My parents were not able to take care of me so I was placed into the foster care system at age 5.
Luckily, I had a very strong “soul compass” as a young child and spoke out to the social workers whenever I was unhappy with my current foster home. This led to me moving between 7 different foster homes from age 5 - 8 until I found my forever family who adopted me at age 12.
Because I had difficulties in school, I was placed on ADD medication at age 8 and remained on it until my early thirties. I met a theta healer around that time who helped me discover my spiritual path and suggested that I might not need the ADD meds anymore.
After stopping my meds cold turkey, I went through a dark night of the soul and didn’t know who I was anymore. Since I was having suicidal thoughts, I started to look for spiritual retreat centers where I could find some answers. I signed up for an Ayahuasca retreat in Costa Rica and experienced a major heart opening there.
This led me to explore different spiritual modalities that eventually led me to MSU. I’m here to grow my inner wisdom and learn to heal the wounds within.
As a woman who has never fit into societal norms, I’ve always been one to unconsciously attract the broken, and repel the ones resistant to change.
A black sheep of the family, the “strange” one in school, the “crazy one” in relationships, and the “flighty” friend; I’ve never fit in.
It wasn’t until Source showed me in 2019 in losing my grandfather, a TRUE man of God, that I’m meant to be different for a reason, and it’s my greatest gift.
My daughter was born three weeks later, and upon her arrival she has mirrored back to me who I was, before the conditioning, before the pain, before the programming.
In saving that little girl, I’m in turn saving myself.
In choosing love for myself and my children, I left a marriage, a steady paycheck, and a “perfect family” dynamic to save my little people from the same cycles I’ve run the last 25 years.
To be comfortable, is to be complacent, and that is unacceptable for me and mine.
My children deserve the world, and who better to show them than the one who learned the hard way?
I chose myself to be their biggest influence in self love, acceptance, and honoring their individual paths based on what their hearts say, no matter how difficult, or how “strange” it is to others.
I’m absolutely overjoyed to help bring out the same pieces in you that you have lost, because you deserve ultimate happiness, in spite of what society says that happiness is.

Born in Mexico and raised in Colombia, migrated to the United States at the age of 15. Joined the Marine Corps right out of high school, spending 12 years in the service and being exposed to many dark aspects on myself and the world, I quickly learned my innate ability to connect and help people, especially with their emotional and personal hurdles and challenges, always enjoying watching people feel and become what they couldn't see themselves doing.
Now, as an adult and as a father, I've found myself realizing that the biggest challenge has been connecting with myself, my heart, and the divinity of who we truly are.
The work that I've started years ago through therapy and counseling has granted me just enough awareness, so I can be prepared to face the truth of healing and dismantling
the programs and patterns, that through Rachel and Masters of Self University , I would have never been able to find the way to truly transmute them into the powerful light that now guides me to continue to do this beautiful work , and have the honor to help others in their journey of healing and self discovery.
I’m a 32 year old Brazilian woman who came to this country in 2016, hoping to figure out who I am. Since then, a lot happened and life pulled me back to its routine. In 2020, life’s circumstances put me in a mental dark and scary place, which got me to my limits. It was what I needed to know -- I couldn’t live that way anymore, and change needed to be made. So then, my self discovery journey began.
Ever since I could remember I’ve felt like I needed to find myself. From a little girl growing up into a woman, I’ve held on to my past. Carrying all my trauma with me like a purse everywhere I go. It definitely affected my jobs, my daily life, my relationships with my loved ones, and especially my relationship with myself.
I’ve lived for others my whole life, and only now I am learning about myself and I am loving the person I am getting to know. I search for a state of mind where I can feel free and safe again. The only way I knew I could do this, was to confront these issues and be open to honestly feel and heal every single one of them.
I know it’s a long journey and that it will take a lot of hard work from me, but now, I know I am worth it and I deserve it. Even though I’ve been working on myself for about 3 years, I know my journey is just starting, and I can’t wait for all the new that is coming my way.
Asha is a 35 year old single mum from Perth, Western Australia. The split from her ex propelled her into a deep spiritual journey, searching for answers.
Why aren’t my relationships working? Why do I always turn to food? Why is my self esteem so low? How can I turn this around and feel the inner peace I’m so desperately craving?
She’d accomplished some incredible things. Being the strongest woman in Western Australia, the Australian National Champion and the 8th strongest at the world championships Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio. These experiences allowed her to build confidence, express herself and feel self worth. But when it all ended due to injury she felt like she was right back where she started. Lost and searching for answers.
Since starting the work at MSU Asha is discovering the core wounds and programs that have been running the show in her life up until now. She’s on the journey of healing herself and looking forward to empowering others to heal themselves too.

After the ending of her marriage in 2018, a desire to more deeply understand the roots of choices made over the course of her lifetime was fostered. There was a sense of the darkness within that had never been accessed, and a calling to go inward was impossible to ignore.
The understanding cultivated came through as this:
Our deeply painful experiences in life are not to be taken at face value, rather they are a window into a profound knowing and a connection to our hearts!
Emily has been working in the coaching industry for several years, working first with movement and embodiment before becoming certified with masters of self university.
Her desires lay in helping people access their innate power, love, and mysticism that exists in all of us in order to move through and heal trauma.
